Seems subcontractors are now recording meetings then dobbing their boss in to the ACCA

To be fair to the HMITs, it is the leg that uses the term "beyond P's control". They didn't add that in.
It has likely been rewritten to "beyond the customer's control" but my paper leg is a few years old!

A question for people:
When the article is published "Accountants tell all about their horror clients" (or the like), do you think that reflects well on the profession or not? Do you think it makes a good impression with the public or not? Do you think it gives them trust that their issues will be dealt with respectfully and in confidence?
Or do we not care, contribute to this thread and let the profession join the race to the bottom?

I have had someone ask a similar question. I know for a fact that he has plenty of money.
I told him straight that I will not be helping anyone do anything that I consider immoral - which isn't a new policy for me.

Issue invoices for fees frequently and collect them. That would be my advice - for practices. Advice for clients, others can help with.

If only people wrote books explaining how the tax legislation works - or perhaps wrote technical guidance that they put on the internet for professionals to read. Or, perhaps, packaged it into courses and had exams at the end.
I think there could be demand for the above. Whoever implements it could make some money.

I hate it when clients request copies of documents that I have emailed them in the past. Search your emails!

That argument is nothing compared to some of the schemes/arguments I've seen Cornerstone promoting - and mainly getting away with without enquiry (or disclosure) over the years.

Blimey, Peterdell (the OP) is being quite sharp with people considering he was the one who asked a basic question.

"I cannot think..."
Looks that way.
Have you considered retraining as a dog walker?
